Tuesday 1994 - Had an appointment at Main Medical for annual physical - previous one was in November 1992. MY PSA is 5.6 and it should be between 0-4.0. Cost was $221. Kay Dick [?] _________ was in office with her new baby and her 7-year-old son. It looks like the lodge [IOOF] made a real boo-boo as the Ultimate Church group may be a branch of the [Ku Klux] Klan. We called Cynthia in England, cheapest rates before 7AM and after 6PM.

Ginny seems to enjoy that. Lock box opening in Sabina for Helen Wilson Estate.
Saturday 1997 - Went to New Vienna Senior Citizens, John and Karen Hughes Bernard had the program on their pick up truck camper trip to Alaska over a 2 month period. Mowed grass, really didn't need it, but felt it would be too tall in 9 more days. Flowers on corner of house are in bud.
Sunday 1998 - [Phoenix to Columbus] Had breakfast at First Watch with Morgans and Kings. Went to church, contemporary service at 11AM, lots of heavy people, church having spaghetti dinner for $4. Over to Tempe to U.S. Egg, hours are 6AM-2:30PM, reasonable and nice. [One of Roberta's favorite places.] Left of Delta Flight to Columbus, had seats in last row with now window. Nice supper, we brought chicken home. Gas 99.4¢, parking $3/per day first week, then $2/day.
